A Few Good MenSamuel Peacock II was my 5th Great Grandfather. He was a soldier in the Militia for North Carolina. I have had soldiers in this country since it began and beyond in England all the way back to Jerusalem. There is a long lineage of service to our country, and its people in my family.
There is a very cute story about Samuel and General George Washington who wanted to pass his toll bridge free of charge. Samuel told him he would have to pay like anyone else. That guy had something I tell ya!
Here is the rest of the story for a lazy start to your morning, and I hope that you enjoy the look back at some of the men in my family that have helped keep us free! CONTINUE THIS STORY AT MUSINGS WITH KIMMEE ....

This is something people should know about. There are often people going short of food or money for only a few weeks before things get better. Or longer. This can help a lot.
An easy location for pickup in our Chumuckla area is at Pineview in Allentown.

You will want to click the link above to read a nicely done treatise on "The Symbolism of The Arch" -- especially the arch at our Chumuckla School. The links in the article are substantive and should be followed as you progress through the article itself. Enjoy ! Thanks to Chuck for this superb study.

Both communities were hotbeds of commerce - Coon Hill and McDavid. Today, both are quiet remote backwaters. Coon Hill, as most know, is the seed community of Chumuckla ... gradually clawing its way to the current position as the tree harvest edged South. So, Coon Hill is about 6 miles almost Northwest of the Current Chumuckla School.
